Chevrolet News:The Order Books Close On Chevrolet SS


Recommended Posts

With the clock winding down on production of the Holden Commodore, Chevrolet dealers are snapping the remaining lot of SS models being exported to the U.S. Wheels has learned from Chevrolet that the extra 1,000 SS models Holden was planning to build for the U.S. market have been snapped up.

“All US dealer orders are in for the allocated production of the 2017 Chevrolet SS. This includes any additional units that were confirmed for production last year,” said Chevrolet.

Originally, Holden was planning on building 2,000 SS for the U.S. However, the large demand by dealers for the last SS models caused Holden to add an additional 1,000 models for export.

Sad to see it go.  It had actually grown on me.  Would love to see GM eventually see GM offer another hi-po sedan, though that doesn't seem like anything that will happen in near future :(  .

Hopefully replaced by a HI-PO CUV / SUV! :metal:

I do not know if this is true, but there is nothing that says that GM cannot bring the SS back in a year or two.  Ideally there will be a new-bodied SS and a SS-based Cadillac CT8 along with it for all to see and buy sometime soon.

Shuuuuuu, Do not mix chevy and cadillac in the same post, otherwise SMK will go off on how this is further proof that Cadillac is not a true luxury brand, just rebadge this and that.

Traverse SS?   OK maybe if they used the 3.6 TT and a performance tuned AWD suspension I might be intrigued.

Why not, they did it for the Trailblazer SS AWD that I love and has never let me down.

Would love to see an Acadia or Terrain Typhoon Edition AWD using the TTV6. :metal:

YES!  A new Typhoon would be awesome!  Speaking of that, can't imagine it would be too hard to make a Canyon into a modern Cyclone.   Better yet, give the Canyon the ZR2 treatment and put the TT V6 in it and watch me sell a nut and a kidney to get one :)  OK, traveled a little off topic.

I've been thinking a bit and sorry if I don't make 3 separate post's but here we go.

On the Holden/Chevy SS issue I was thinking more like the out going CTS as a replacement. It's going to leave the Cadillac fold and GM has used other models in this manner. We talked about this before in that Cadillac options and features would trickle down to the remaining divisions. In this case the entire car with the benefit of a new skin possibly add some harshness to the tune and utilize the car for a 3to4 more years. After all it is a low volume nich.

On the sale of Opel will Chevrolet be the feeder for Holden here shortly or will Holden be thrust into more of a r&d center? GM could reverse the decision and throw them a bone of one model to build and develope with Ozland the test market it could be like the Chevy SS as a intermittent model of three year runs since GM likes to be so conservative with NA releases. I think the Aussie's have always gave GM more bang for the buck unlike Opel with massive losses dating back to my knowledge at least to the 70's.
